The Executive Director Search Committee will coordinate the recruitment of a new Executive Director.  Theirs is a long list of duties including implementing a fair and thorough selection process, soliciting input from the library community, releasing a job ad, interviewing candidates, and checking references.  The SELCO/SELS Board of Directors, the Personnel Committee, member library directors, SELCO staff, and possibly an executive search firm will also be engaged in the process.

To assist with the dissemination of information throughout the process, a special page has been added to the SELCO website to provide search updates.
